A pack of pranksters plastered London with prints from Bansky’s Dismaland. The group calling themselves Special Patrols targeted an notorious biennial arms fair.
Strike magazine just stuck this up on their Facebook:
“Over 300 posters by guerrilla artists from Banksy’s Dismaland have appeared across the capital’s train carriages and bus stops to mark the first day of the DSEI Arms Fair, a controversial event at the ExCel Centre, where over 1,500 exhibitors sell deadly weapons ranging from rifles to tanks.
The Dismaland exhibition has a “museum of cruel designs” which contains art about the arms trade, so curator Gavin Grindon said the protests about the DSEI fair were “a natural progression”.
Job well done.
The Guardian has this low down on all the various war lords and misery peddlars being ushered into London for the fair. Follow the #StopDSEI tag for updates as they happen.
